    Was somewhat of an exaggeration Had been having the same argument at school all day so when I saw your post I was somewhat annoyed.

    His touch is heavy and takes the ball away from goal. Defenders would've got there first IMO.

    Its called playing for the foul... So many players do that in penalty area, it doesn't matter how heavier the touch is, bottom line is he was denied a goal scoring opportunity.

    No the touch was that heavy that if there hadn't been contact we'd all be mocking Suarez for being an oaf and costing his team an opportunity.
    He lost control of the ball ergo had no opportunity to score.

    I thought the red was harsh but I understand it. Surely in a circumstance like that then the pen is enough?

    You'll have to point me to the rule which states that it's the player in possession's responsibility to avoid contact when a defender tries to half you.

    Been all Mexico. Combination of shyte finishing (Vela once more showing his inability to hit a cow's arse with a banjo, already amply demonstrated at The Arse) and Lloris have kept in goalless at the break.

    Yeah, started with two draws, didn't they? Then beat (IIRC) South Korea to qualify.
